OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
Well it didn't die out entirely, since Elrond lives on in Valinor. And it was never possible for it to remain in Middle Earth -- if they wanted to embrace immortality, Elrond and his children had to go eventually to Valinor, no?
Gwídhiel what I meant is that there were no more elves who had to make a choice anymore. Elrond already had made his decision, and once Arwen, and the twins had decided to stay and remain, then there were no more mixed race elves who could choose their faiths. I thought it made sense for Tolkien to have this strain pass on and become part of the mortal/human world.
